    Helmet question

    I know this isn't a passion question, but I do know a lot of you ride xc and would like some opinions on two different helmets.
    I am looking at the Giro Zen and the Fox Flux. The Flux is on sale, and I like the sharper lines of it, but not crazy about the goofy "spoiler" they have on the top/rear of it.
    Giro, I hear are very comfortable, but not too crazy about the "rounder" look it has.
    IF anyone has experience with both of these, that would be great. I just want to know which one is more comfortable ( padding nothing jabbing in your head at any given time, ease of adjustability etc).

    I typically wear giro helmets but I think they sit too high on my head. I tried on a Fox and it covered my temples and more coverage on the back of my head. It will likely be my next helmet.
    Oh sh!+ just force upgraded to cat1. Now what?
    Best thing about an ultra marathon? I just get to ride my bike for X hours!

    I have them both, the Giro looks better and has better adjusters
    the fox fits better and was cheaper
    I wear the Giro more but only because of the looks

    I have tried both. The Flux does not fit my head. I bought a Zen and love it

    I've been wearing the Flux all season with no complaints.
    It vents really well and fits my head fine..
    not sure if you saw it a bikebling or not? but they are selling them for $69....

    You have to try them on. Neither fit my head so neither are comfortable.

    You can remove the "spoiler."

    The trouble with common sense is it is no longer common

    I should be getting a flux here in the mail soon, I'll throw out some opinions and include pics of the helmet.
